State Convention 2016

This year, 28 members of the Crestview FFA traveled to Columbus on Thursday, May 5th and Friday, May 6th to attend the 88th annual FFA State Convention at the Ohio State Fairgrounds. On the way to Columbus, the group stopped at Sunrise Cooperative-Crestline for a facility tour. Led by the site manager, Steve Niese, members were able to see the entire on-site process first hand. Members gained a better understanding of all the hard work and preparation that goes into helping farmers on the road to maximized yields in the fall. During the first session of State Convention, the chapter received a Chapter Trust award and was also recognized for raising money to donate toward the Children’s Hospital.  After first session, the group was given a personal tour of the Ohio State University Ag campus by Crestview FFA alumni, Abby Motter.  Abby attends OSU with an intended major in agriculture education. After touring the campus, the group returned to the grounds to watch second session, which included proficiency award recognition and a touching presentation by keynote speaker, Dave Roever. The following day during the third session, Crestview was awarded with the gold medal chapter award. Following awards, keynote speaker Jones Loflin delivered his message to the convention hall of over 7000 FFA members and guests.  During fourth session, 2015-2016 Crestview officers were awarded for their gold rated officer books. These officers included Kathy Lehman for her Treasurer’s book and Emma Ardis for her Reporter’s book. During the fifth and final session of the 88th Annual State Convention, chapter junior, Dawson LaFever, was awarded his state degree.
